After 15 years on the Denver Broncos coaching staff -- all of them as the team's running backs coach -- Bobby Turner has been named the new assistant head coach/running backs for the Washington Redskins, the Redskins announced Thursday.

There he will join former Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan.

Turner's star pupil in Denver, Terrell Davis, was a key part of the team's two Super Bowl victories in 1997 and 1998 with Turner as his position coach. Davis had one of the 11 individual 1,000-yard rushing seasons by Denver running backs coached by Turner.

Before his arrival in Denver, Turner was assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and running backs coach at Purdue University from 1991-94. He served as the running backs coach at Ohio State University from 1989-90, and held the same position at at Fresno State from 1983-88.

Turner also coached at his alma mater, Indiana State, beginning in 1975 as the team's running backs and quarterbacks coach, also working as the strength and conditioning coordinator that season. Turner was Indiana State's defensive backs coach as well as its strength and conditioning coordinator from 1976-77 before working as the team's running backs coach and special teams coordinator from 1978-81. In his final year at Indiana State in 1982, he coached defensive backs and served as special teams coordinator.

Turner began his coaching career at Haworth High School in Kokomo, Ind., as an assistant with the football and basketball teams from 1972-74.
